    Description

    1926 New York Yankees Team Signed Baseball. Among the toughest of all Yankee team balls is the 1926 vintage, representing the second pinstriped crew to capture the American League flag. Here we present just such a rarity, an OAL (Johnson) sphere providing a roster of twenty-seven names including a sweet spot "Babe" Ruth, Gehrig, Huggins, Combs, Hoyt, Lazzeri, Pennock and the rare Urban Shocker, who, like Huggins, would not live to see the change of the decade. Autograph strength ranges from 2/10 to 6/10, but all names are legible and one must forgive any condition deficiencies in light of the tremendous scarcity. An exciting relic from the season that the Babe clubbed three homers for a hospitalized boy named Johnny Sylvester, one of the most celebrated tales in Ruth lore. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
